Kim joined the practice in 2004 as a trainee dental nurse. She qualified in 2006, was soon promoted to Head Nurse, a role she has now resumed after taking a break from the role to have her children. Kim is a very busy person at the practice, and recently has added “Dental Health Educator” to her role, working with patients on a one to one basis, as well as visiting local schools, community groups etc. to spread the message about the importance of good oral hygiene. Kim is due to take her exam in September 2017. In addition to this, Kim also has additional NEBDN qualifications in Impression taking, Plaque scoring and Fluoride varnish application, all skills that complement her Dental Health Educator role. Kim has also recently completed her ILM Decontamination Lead course.

Kim is also a dental nurse tutor and examiner for the National Examining Board for Dental Nurses (NEBDN) and runs the NEBDN course from Torrington Dental Practice.

Outside of work, Kim loves spending time with her family, socialising and keeping relatively fit!
